Callback: “Untitled Chris Case Pilot/aka Havoc” @ Josh Einsohn
Casting.Again, I left very happy
with how this callback went.I
think I took the direction very well and I made them laugh, plus I had
fun.Honestly, I don’t know when
was the last time I had a callback for a pilot.I call that a success, even if it doesn’t go any further.
Audition: “Untitled Chris Case Pilot/aka Havoc” @ Josh Einsohn
Casting.This was a pre-read and I
was very happy with how things went in the room.Hopefully I will get a callback!
Audition: “Pure Protein/Sun Naturals” @ Pop Casting.I was late getting to this one because
of the earlier pilot audition and I didn’t have a partner, so I read with part
of the casting team.It went
okay…I guess.Not so sure a
callback is in my future for this one.
Audition: “Realtor.com” @ Francine Selkirk Casting.Same-day call on a busy afternoon, but
the schedule worked out perfectly and the audition was pretty good too.
In other news, purchased my ticket to head back east to Virginia
and then a road trip up to Pennsylvania for my Aunt Barbara’s funeral.
I also got word that I have a callback tomorrow for the pilot I
went in on today.I’m SO excited
I’m not so excited about missing another audition for tomorrow
and ALSO a callback for “Pure Proteins/Sun Naturals”, but I gotta do what I
While at work, I received the unfortunate news that my Aunt
Barbara passed away back in Chester, Pennsylvania.I wasn’t particularly close with my Aunt Barbara in recent
years, but she was always such a warm, sweet lady.I spoke to her back in December when she first went into the
hospital.We had a great
conversation…and she made it clear to me that, when she passed away, I had “BETTER”
be at the funeral.
At this point I’m not sure what I’m going to do.Well, I’m pretty sure, at the end of
the day, I will be there, but it’s just so complicated.You see, if I attend the funeral, I
will most likely be in the same physical space as my father…assuming he attends.
This makes me so, incredibly
nervous.I haven’t seen or spoken
to my father since 2003, one year after my mother passed away.
Honestly, I haven’t spoken to anyone in my family in a few
months, not even my youngest brother that I’m relatively close to.Wait, that’s not totally true.I’ve had some not so great
conversations with my older brother.He and I have never really had a good relationship.I REALLY hope this changes for the
better one of these days, but first people need to want it to change and I
don’t have any evidence that that is the case…sad face.
Audition: “Criminal Minds” @ Scott David Casting.I was prepared and ready to go…props
and all.The “props thing” is
always kinda iffy, but I didn’t want to mime in the audition…so I brought a few
props.I was happy with how it
went and I REALLY hope to book something on this show before it’s cancelled.
Shooting: “Dude” @ Palisades Charter High School.This was a reshoot from last
December.It was fun, a little
hectic, plus I was late getting there because of the LA Marathon.Traffic was a complete nightmare, so by
the time I got there it was GO! GO! GO!
Audition: “Boeing” @ Lisa Saltau Casting.This is an industrial and the notification
came in through my theatrical agency instead of my commercial agency.Most likely because the CD usually does
theatrical projects.Earlier today
I was in the area of my commercial agency so I stopped in to say “hello”…and
let them see me dressed in a suit.
One of my agents informed me that they don’t normally consider
me for industrial submissions.She
explained her reasons why and it gave me a great indication of how they view me
as a part of their roster.I left
Callback: “Good Thins” @ RMB Casting.This callback was a bit confusing, because it was quite
different than what we did the first time and what I was supposed to do was a
bit confusing to me, BUT I got to work with a few kids.I have to say, I’m great working with
kids!I’m not sure how it went,
but I guess I’ll know something soon…or not.
Callback: “Twix” @ Cathi Carlton Casting.I felt great about this callback and
it’s a director I’ve worked with twice before. One of my partners in the room was having a difficult time
with the dialogue, but I don’t think it affected my performance.Hoping for an avail call this evening
Audition: “The Bachelor” Bright/Daniels Casting.Loved this character and think it went
well and very happy to have gotten an appointment for that size of a role.
Audition: “Hyundai” @ RMB Casting.This was fun and I had a great time in the room with my
“wife”.Hopefully one day, I’ll be
fortunate enough to have a great wife in real life!Hey, that rhymed!
My 10 year-old niece, Nikita, returned from her 3 week holiday
vacation in The Philippines.I
thought she would’ve been exhausted after such a long, 14-hour flight, but no,
she was raring to go!She had a
great time with her friend and her family and is already planning to visit them
in the future.
Audition: “The Grinder” @ McCarthy/Abellaro Casting.Hmm…I’m not sure how this went.I had my own ideas about the pre-life of
the character before my actual dialogue, but I don’t think it went over too
well.The part was too small to
try to explain what was in my head so, of course, I just took the direction
from the CD and delivered that as best I could.
This afternoon I picked up my 10 year-old niece, Nikita, from
LAX.She flew in from Washington,
DC and was on her way to the Philippines to visit a former schoolmate and her
family for the next 3 weeks.I hadn’t
seen her in about 4 years and it was our first time spending time together
without her father.Unfortunately,
her father and I aren’t close, but it was great to get to see her even if just
for a few hours in between flights.I must say that he, my brother, is doing a great job of raising her!
Wrap party: “Dude”…somewhere in the lower Hollywood hills,
ironically, over looking the very place where I work at night.This was a bit of a weird experience
because I didn’t actually get to film my scene in the movie, I didn’t know or
really even recognize anyone from the production.
At first, I felt like someone who snuck in to just eat the
food!After a while I started
talking a woman and then felt a little more like I had a reason to be there,
lol!Before leaving I really
wanted to introduce myself to Olivia Milch, the director, but since I didn’t
audition I hadn’t met her and wasn’t sure what she looked like.I explained my dilemma to my new friend
and she pointed out exactly who Olivia was.
a moment or two, I approached Olivia and she greeted me like an old friend AND
knew exactly who I was. She gave
me a gift of a hat with the name of the film on it, DUDE, and assured me that
the scene will be rescheduled. With
that I finished my chicken kabob and walked back down the Hollywood Hill…and
went to my night job. http://www.stephonfuller.com
Callback: “McDonald’s @ RMB Casting.Eh, I didn’t feel so great about this one and it’s certainly
my own fault.I heard the
explanation clearly, but I just don’t think that I executed it well
